Recently come back to the latest Animate for a project.
When naming layers "special characters" such as 0 and - and empty spaces are no longer compatible?
I'm using Animate to set up a model to rig in another program and our naming convention requires some of these characters.
I can work around this but it's just irritating and feels like an arbitrary change...
Is there a setting somewhere to override this?
If you don't use Layer Parenting or any of the so-called 'Advanced' layer features, you can switch off that and layer names will start accepting any characters.
Just go to Modify > Document... and remove the checkbox for Advanced Layers.
You can also make this default for new files.
Ah! So simple. I don't use any of the advanced features so this is perfect! Thanks so much!

The change isn't arbitrary. With Advanced Layers enabled, layer names are required to be valid variable names.
